The complete BBC Radio 4 series, 'Touchline Tales', in which old friends Des Lynam and Christopher Matthew visit some famous sporting venues to enjoy, observe, reminisce and trade tales about some of the greatest pleasures in their lives. Originally broadcast 2 - 16 July 2010.

They lay some bets at a mid-week meet at Goodwood Races, take in the opening day at the International Tennis Championship at Eastbourne, and attend a Pro-Am competition at the Royal Blackheath Golf Club.

Amusing, informative and entertaining talk between old friends are what these programmes are all about.

Recorded entirely on location, their extended discourses have been edited down to a seamless half hour per episode - with each programme capturing the atmosphere, the passion, the frustration, the humour and, at times, the sheer quaintness, of entertainments regularly enjoyed by millions of people up and down the land.
